“Aprende español”, my new blog, is intended to provide my Spanish classes with a forum to practice their skills in reading, writing and listening in Spanish. By posting articles, images and videos, the class can read or watch and then respond by blogging. I hope they’ll be able to then respond to each other’s posts.
Writing their opinions and reactions will help them express themselves more spontaneously and naturally. Rather than, or in addition to, summarizing the material they read or see, they will respond to it intellectually, emotionally, artistically… and of course, linguistically.
I welcome suggestions from people who have more experience with this. I’d love to hear about successful strategies and projects that teachers have used with blogs.
